    Description

    Westfront 1918 (MGM, 1930). Pre-War Belgian (24" X 30.25").
    G. W. Pabst's searing anti-war film features stunning camera work and sound design, in this story of four German soldiers in the last days of WWI. Remarkably, this was Pabst's first sound film. This evocative Belgian poster has stylized artwork, and utilizes a highly unusual base of silver ink. Slight touchup has been applied to some of the small tears in the borders and a couple of minor chips in the lower corners. Still visible are pinholes in the borders, staining along the upper border, and a minor chip in the upper right corner. The imprint area has been trimmed. Fine+ on Linen.
